RE Marie Lake
- I have never hiked up to Marie Lake (So. of Donahue Pass) but I have
camped several times in the basin of Marie Creek, just about a mile up
from the PCT/JMT. It is superb camping and very scenic. You need to
leave the trail that leads to the lake and head toward the creek after
an easy mile of uphill trail. There are many flat spots near the creek.
The attached picture shows a lovely fall on Marie Creek. It was a very
cloudy day so the light is not great.
